Background and problem formulation:

Is the background and problem formulation addressing a problem that has within
research relevance and without research relevance. Are the three questions of
What do we know about this problem / What do we knot know about this problem
and Why is it relevant to know more about this problem addressed? Are there
references to 2-3 research publications? Are key terms explained?

The following aspects could be improved:

Purpose and research questions:

Is the purpose precise? Can it be fulfilled? Is it possible to understand: what will be


studied, how and with what kind of theory? Are the research questions coherent with
the purpose?

Suggestion of a reformulated purpose and RQs

Is there a tunnel structure to the Introduction: background, problem formulation,


purpose and research questions?

Method and execution:

Is the method described, and relevant for the purpose of the study? Are the
referencing made to the course book (Bell & Waters, 2014) or other adequate method
literature?

Is it deemed possible that the empirical material will be possible to collect?

Project Plan

Does the project plan seem possible to execute? Are the three required tasks
(grammatical check, language check, referencing check and formatting JU-template)
included?

Report structure and formalities

If relevant: Are referencing in text and reference list done following the instructions
from the library?
